There is a dairy (small grocery store) located within 200m from Camp Waipu Cove, where you can buy everything from fruit and vegetables to hot fish and chips. The dairy also sells fresh bread, milk and other grocery items, along with cold drinks, ice creams, potato chips etc. The Cove Cafe and restaurant is a short walk (within 400m) from Camp Waipu Cove and serves a great selection of food (open daily 9am - 9pm, open 8am - late over summer).
There are BBQs on the day reserve at the southern end of our Waipu Cove camping ground (this is the beachfront public area that is also maintained by Camp Waipu Cove - your ideal Northland holiday park). There is also a BBQ area located at each of the three ablutions blocks in the camp itself.
Camp Waipu Cove holiday park has a dump station onsite for your convenience.
A limited supply of linen is available for hire when you book in to stay in one of the Kitchen Cabins. Linen is available at the Camp Waipu Cove office for $15 per bed (regardless of the length of your stay). In each linen bag you will receive a set of sheets, blankets, towels and pillows.
Only one vehicle per site permitted. No parking on empty sites or driveways. Extra vehicles must be parked in the car park at the entrance or at the northern car park.
The Camp Waipu Cove office is open each day from 7.00am to 10.00pm (during peak times) and 7.30am to 9pm in the off-peak season. We are happy to help you with anything to make your stay as fun and relaxing as possible.

Unfortunately we are not able to allow pets on-site. We are situated right next to the Waipu Wildlife Refuge, home to the New Zealand fairy tern, probably New Zealand's most endangered indigenous breeding bird.
All our accommodation units and communal buildings are strictly non-smoking/Vaping. Additional charges will be made for additional cleaning and maintenance costs incurred as a result of failure to observe this policy. From October 2021 the camp will be completely smoke free and Vape free. This means guests will not be able to vape or smoke in any part of the camp ground.
